Amec Foster Wheeler has been awarded a contract by the National Company for Fertilizers & Chemicals, AGROCHEM, to supply material and detailed engineering for a steam reformer heater for its fertilizer facility in Alexandria, Egypt.

The steam reformer heater, based on Amec Foster Wheeler's Terrace WallTM design, will operate as the primary reformer in the 250 tpd ammonia production unit. This will allow AGROCHEM to have the complete production line within its facility without any external sourcing of ammonia.

Jonathan Lewis, Amec Foster Wheeler's Chief Executive, said: “Amec Foster Wheeler has a proven track record in the design and supply of fired heaters. Our proprietary Terrace WallTM fired heater technology is unique and proven globally and we look forward to applying it to this important facility for AGROCHEM.”

AGROCHEM is a new customer for Amec Foster Wheeler. The scope of work is scheduled for completion at the end of 2016.
